April and I found this today at the local Target SuperStore and she made a noise of such horrified realization that I had to take a photograph of it; I got used to bringing my digital everywhere in Beijing but I fell out of the habit until very recently. I’m glad I managed to catch this. It says a lot that I monitor the changing of the seasons not necessarily by the temperatures (global warming) but rather by the advent of store decorations, candy and Halloween costumes on sale (globalization). It’s a weirdly existential thought to have, walking down the aisle of a grocery store, and passing a dispaly of maple flavored spread, to think, “Huh, it must be fall.”
